Okay pit...
I am going to London and i wonder if someone knows a store with instruments and etc. that is in london and that is pretty big too. mostly i just walk around and watch the instruments and listen to people talkin but it is a + if it is okay to test the instruments too

EDIT: I cant go to denmark street. it is to far away from where we are gonna be.
The store has to be between gatwick airport and croydon or crawley.

Denmark street has about a dozen different instrument shops on it, it's world famous for all the music shops. You'll find it just off Tottenham Court Road. There's also Sound Control on Oxford Street and the Wembley Guitar Center in West London
ohai little sig.

Denmark Street is alright for looking at instruments, but do not give them any of your money. The shops are all co-owned, so while the prices may seem close between them all, they are still way above what anywhere else is charging and they don't negotiate. There's a Zaavi (used to be Virgin Megastore) just around the corner which actually has a massive music shop in the basement, that's cool to look around as well, but make sure you know what you're buying.

If you fancy getting the train to Wembley there is Wembley Guitar Centre which I prefer to all the others as they have soundproof practise rooms and lots of valve amps to scream though.

Ok thanks. so there is stores at denmark street and some more somewhere near?

Edit: ok.

as everyone says ur best shot is Denmark street guitar shops everywhere


Yeah, go there and look and try out whatever you want. Also have a look in Zaavi which is very very close to Denmark Street (just around the corner) but I warn you about buying things, especially as you are a tourist. They try to rip off the locals, I imagine they'd just try it more with tourists as they'll never see them again. If you want to buy anything, be deadly sure about what it is and the value of it.

I have two uncles living in london and they have a million of relatives cuz theyre part-greek and i know the value cuz i got Vacation-money from my dad that i only can use there... kindof... but theres mostly pedals and and maybe a cymbal for my drums... i know a guy at the local shop so i can call him and look up the prices there. and they have very good prices.
theyre site is here if you wonder.

Ok. one more question. do anyone know how much a multi-effect-thing like this or this would cost at any of those stores. i only have around 120£ or something like that and i want a little to use to other stuff so i preffer it would cost up to 100£. i would also preffer line6.

OOOH! I love penguins!
I can go to any other store in london also as long it aint too far away from any underground station. i now also have a question that dont really have with the rest to do. what is the cheapest cymbals with holding-thing (i dont know what it is in english) i can find. it would be good if there are any cheap at denmark street but anywhere else in london is also okay. or at internet...

Yeah, definately. One of them wouldn't let me try out a guitar because I didn't have the cash that day. I would have bought it from them within that week had I tried it out but since he was unwilling to help out I figured someone else deserves the sale.
#23
theres also a drum shop on denmark street so you can look there, but im sure youll be able to find something real cheap in the internet. Stagg make really cheap drum hardware

DENMARK STREEEET, then hit leicester sq station for a train straight to brighton and GAK <3.
In a shop on denmark st, theres some crazy dude in one of the shops (next to the shop whos owner looks like ricky gervais), he looks like a russian or somethin, black hair n a moustachy beard. DONT go near him. He wont leave you alone to even test a guitar unless you are buying it, and he will do EVERYTHING he can to make you buy it, even if you say you have no money

I doubt you will find a better range of service in the whole of london.

Or ask your mum for some monies to take a train to brighton

I spent a week in london just me and my three friends. We were out all day every day from when we got up untill usually 1 in the morning and were never mugged, stabbed, threatened or pick pocketed.

Keep your wits about you, don't have valuables on show, don't go down any dodgy alleys, keep away from the rough areas and you'll be fine.

Also, I have to remember denmark street for the next time I'm down there goddamn...
